A man has been sentenced to a year in jail for pushing his wife down after the two argued over a pack of cigarettes.The man, Tracy Jennings, 45, entered guilty pleas to charges of domestic assault and violation of probation and was ordered by General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to serve an 11-month, 29-day sentence.His jail terms comes after deputies arrived to his McReynolds Road home and found his wife with a knot and cut on her head and blood on her hair.“She said her husband got upset over cigarettes and shoved her down on the front porch,” said sheriff’s deputy Ben Cannon, noting she fell backward. “She fell and struck her head on items on the porch.”Jennings ran away before deputies arrived. Lawmen deduced he was the primary aggressor in the quarrel that left his wife injured.
